Getting In: How a Chinese Company Bought Access to Top U.S. Colleges
A major Chinese education company has paid thousands of dollars in perks or cash to admissions officers at top U.S. universities to help students apply to American schools. And according to eight former employees of Shanghai-based Dipont Education Management Group, the company’s services didn’t end there. Dipont is accused by ex-employees of helping students cheat on their college applications. The company also has spent widely to get its clients in front of schools such as Vanderbilt, Wellesley and the University of Virginia.
